Does anyone know anything about Kameron WImbley's overall quality? I've seen rumors he's about to be let go by Oakland (many with pictures of him getting a TD against GB, alas).

I wonder if that graphic is used so often because it was the only major play he made that season?

He was the top ranked 4-3 OLB in the league after Von Miller in the ProFootballFocus grades this year I think. He was tearing it up as a run defender and pass rusher. His size suggests he's a perfect fit as a 3-4 OLB but his first few years with the Browns playing that position he didn't have that much production.

I think he has the potential to be a terrific player for any team regardless of the scheme, but for what he'll probably want for a salary I don't think we can really afford him.

I can never tell if you're being serious or not, but yeah, every Oakland game I saw last year (and I saw like 3 or 4 games) he was terrorizing the offensive line all game. That play against the Packers may have been his biggest splash play of the year (though he did have a 4-sack performance vs the Chargers and a near pick six vs the Bears), but he was very effective on a snap-to-snap basis.

It was a legit question. I don't know of him and can't recall hearing of him. I think I get him and Cameron Wake blended in as one sometimes.

You have to pay a fee to get access to the good stuff. The front page articles are pretty lame. I did subscribe personally, and for me, being the stats geek that I am, I love the added info and grades. I mean, they even have a stat for WRs and TEs called Yards Per Route Run... it's pretty crazy the detail they go into there.

Wake and Wimbley are very similar players, though from what I know the biggest difference is that Wimbley is better against the run and Wake is a better pass rusher. They did play in different schemes but in a lot of ways they are very similar.

Dwight Freeney is being "shopped" by the Colts. Think he could help the Packers?

Probably, but he's 32, and Ted probably wouldn't bite unless he came cheap...

32? Dannnnnnnnngggg! No chance of the Packers giving up anything remotely close to "of value" for him then.


I think we all know it won't happen, but Mario Williams I think would be a good addition.

I do wonder how much Mario Williams is going to make. He is definitely the hyped free agent du jour. I hope whatever team picks him up gets value for the money they are going to be throwing at him.

I sure hope not. He's another guy that shouldn't even be on the roster of any team. The Jets are probably hoping to get something out of him due to the fact he has experience, but I don't think any team will end up biting on it.

I doubt it. I don't think Uncle Teddy feels the need for another OT. Unless of course he knows that Sherrod's injury was career ending.

He's someone I thought of, would like to get him. But as you said cheap or at least very reasonable being he's 32 and has some injury history. I'm thinking 5th or less; 4th, I'm not sure, it would depend on what players I think I could get in the draft.

Wouldn't be too bad if we could get him at a decent price. He's a mid-level center who's relatively young.

Sounds like the Bears are going after Mario Williams. LOL. Let's see, Julius Peppers on one side, Mario on the other.

It seems odd that every year the Bares can go out and make some huge signing like this to save Lovey's job. But it stands to reason, being that they don't have much else on their team.

I'm fine with Graham Harrell as our backup QB. Our biggest needs are DE, OLB, SS.


It's amazing how long a player can ride the 1st round pick hype train, isn't it? I mean, my goodness, Jeff Backus still seems to be doing just that.

Of course, he's been the benificiary of the Lions' ineptness, as well.

Anyway, I think Jeremy Mincey might be a somewhat interesting option.

He might be a tad bit on the big side at 6'3/270, but his build doesn't differ that much from LaMar Woodley's.

He's still somewhat under the radar amongst fans, for as far as I've noticed, although I can imagine that that's not the case in league circles.

Of course, that's more of a pipe dream than anything else, as this seems to be the only player in FA who actually has the skills to help us at a position of need, rather than be a stop-gap solution, and still be somewhat affordable.

If the Packers think Sherrod isn't ready or should play guard, then agreed. Winston is a stud.
